Big Sky Stampin' Papercrafting

I have been a crafter most of my life, starting in about 8th grade when I tried to embroider some frogs on a quilt, that I never finished! Although the list of what "I never finished" is long, and includes cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, quilting and more, my latest obsession is paper! I joined Stampin'Up! as an independent demonstrator in October 2011 and have been going like crazy ever since! I offer classes in my home, do catered card parties at your home and sell my cards locally in Bozeman, Montana and around the lovely Gallatin Valley. I would love to meet and talk to you if you are interested in the papercrafting hobby or just need some unique handmade cards for a special occasion!

Classy Copper!

Hi stamper friends!

We have had various gold and silver papers, ribbons, inks, embossing powders since I started with Stampin'Up! 5 years ago but now we have COPPER!  I wasn't sure about it until I saw it in person and I have been re-ordering the copper foil paper multiple times this fall!  Here's a fun card featuring it:

I realized that I was remembering the Affectionately Yours designer series paper collection had a crumb cake/copper accent specialty piece of paper. I pulled it out and loved how it looked against the copper foil paper. So, next step was what to make that combines both! Since I only had one piece of the DSP, I decided to cut 3" squares (for a total of 16 squares out of one sheet of paper) and then using the Merry Tags Framelit die, I cut a tree ornament.  I decided to go really classy and have black as my color accent. this would also look amazing with a Night of Navy, Elegant Eggplant, Cherry Cobbler and more dark and rich colors.  What do you think?  I would love to hear your thoughts or variations on my theme!

Hope you have a very creative day!
